ENGIE’s Cape Ann to provide FSRU services to Chinese group CNOOC for the winter season
ENGIE announces that it has renewed the regasification and storage services contract with Chinese energy group CNOOC for the coming winter season. This will be provided by the FSRU GDF SUEZ Cape Ann in the port of Tianjin.
The FSRU arrived in Tianjin fully loaded with LNG and started operations on 28 October. She will remain in the Chinese port until Spring 2018.
Cape Ann has previously provided similar services to CNOOC, from November 2013 to January 2017, as a contribution to both LNG and natural gas supply needs, mainly during winter period associated with peak demand.
In addition to the usual FSRU activities, Cape Ann will also transfer LNG into smaller on-shore tanks which are used by CNOOC for LNG trucking activity.
Philip Olivier, Head of ENGIE Global LNG, commented: “We are especially pleased to continue this relationship with CNOOC, a long standing partner of ENGIE in the field of LNG. This new contract illustrates ENGIE’s fast track capabilities to provide safe, reliable and flexible LNG importing solutions to meet the needs of our customers.”
